Anne Dyjak, PCDC’s Managing Director of Capital Investment, has been appointed to the board of directors for the Coalition of Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI Coalition). Following a vote by the CDFI Coalition membership at the annual meeting held at the CDFI Institute in Washington, DC, Dyjak will serve a three-year term on the board as a member at large.
Formed in 1992, the CDFI Coalition is one of the lead national organizations in the United States promoting the work of CDFIs. Through its member organizations, the Coalition represents CDFIs working in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, coordinating industry-wide initiatives to increase the availability of capital, credit, and financial services to low-income communities. The Coalition is also the primary advocate for the CDFI Fund, the single largest provider of available funds for CDFIs.
PCDC has been a Coalition member since 2016.
“The CDFI Coalition has been instrumental in shaping policy and encouraging fair access to financial resources for America’s underserved people and communities,” said Dyjak. “I am proud to join my colleagues on the board as we advocate together for capital and policies that benefit these communities and help achieve equity.”
Dyjak joined PCDC in 2014 following a 30-year career in financial services. She is the Chair of the Lenders Coalition for Community Health Centers and serves on the BlueHub Loan Fund Community Advisory Board.
